I feel like I should change the name of this blog to something like "Psychotic Insomniac" or "Trail Of Ambien". It seems like I spend too much time focusing on my sleep issues here. So, let me say very briefly that for some unknown reason, I slept well last night.
I am really looking forward to taking my week's vacation this month and getting home to see my family, but it all hinges on one thing- Billy Boy getting back here from San Diego so that I have someone to watch the dogs. If he doesn't come back in time, I can't go. I'll have to put it off. It will be harder for me to get the approval for the time in April or May. He has said in emails that he is "working on getting back". That's kind of sketchy. He is also shacked up out there with this doctor who is paying his way for him. They are dating, according to him. Well, I'll just have to wait and see. I could in theory take the dogs with me to Ohio, but that would be a very long ride in that little car for them, and my parent's have a "no pets in the house" rule. I wouldn't leave the boys outside. They aren't used to it and, well, I just wouldn't do it.
I am going with the wife to get our taxes done this weekend. Yes, we are still filing jointly. By doing that and claiming zero all year, we get a nice fat return from both the state and federal to split. We go to a place in Philly that does a very good job, but the wait, even with an appointment is like an hour. I really hate that part. It's a small waiting room with very few seats and it's always crowded. I always end up standing up. I'm going to bank my half of the return. There is nothing I need to go out and buy at this point. I'm not going to go and splurge on anything. I want to save the cash for another trip home in the fall.
Well, back to the paperwork for now. I'll read everyone's blogs in a while.
